focuses on energy, environmental regulatory issues. i have to tell you, you have to hear what they say. the former mexican president talking about the goal here. economic growth and sustainability are interdependent. you cannot have one without the other. what do you say? >> well, if that is the case what we need to subsidize it with taxpayer dollars? if this is such a profitable idea, if the green energy market is a multitrillion-dollar economy, then let the ceos and venture-capital this figure that out. while this been a your money in my money? it makes economic sense. this culture of promoting these ideas with government capitol only creates government welfare or corporate welfare and creates corporate dependence. gerri: companies that fail as we talked about some many times in the show. whether you're talking about solyndra or a number of others that our government financed. you would think that maybe these are just wacked-out the trees coming of the wild ideas. and back, this green growth alliance has members like the world bank, deutsche bank, any number, ge can hsbc as members.
no currently and relying completely i will say hard energy sources and fossil fuels and that sort of thing, and even in my own personal campaign there was a hit piece that came out about how i was in bed with shell oil and nigeria and active vifts there and we know that is true and disappearing and what not and i don't think we should under estimate the type of political quagmire that this program will find itself in and the attacks are unwarranted and misinforming and certainly i'm not suggesting they're all coming from pg&e, but certainly there is a motivation to maintain the monopoly they have held in the city around providing energy, so with that being said i just wanted to close my comments and i am glad next week i think we're at lafco hearing the task force recommendations. that is critical and sometimes we pass the policies and our actions never conform with the policies that we pass, so if we're serious about reaching that goal in 10 years i think we really need to get serious and that's why cleanpower sf is so important, but in closing i want to go back again and harp on my jimmy

to hire the energy commission. california became the leader in energy efficiency. we put in tax credits and policies of the public utilities commission to favor alternative energy, independent power production. which is obvious today. when they promoted code- generation it was something very novel. 30 years ago. now you have a different name for a period in his third party power production using power in a driving way to recapture the most efficient way. innovation is important. i have to also, every time we heard the word innovation, i have to put a plug in for tradition. i have a very traditional education. i spent a lot of years in silence speaking latin up in the hills, living within the medieval framework. i do respect the past. we study it. if you are grounded in tradition, you feel quite confident in change and innovation. if you are insecure, you are very reluctant to embrace the unknown. i do think we need to in our education and politics, we have to have a new appreciation for our traditions and the patterns that describe our culture and our being as americans. having said all

of employment, construction jobs, manufacturing jobs, in the energy space, tend to be higher paying than other jobs, particularly service jobs. so if we see a continued pick up in the housing market, continued strength in manufacturing, this could lead to the virtuous cycle that we have all been waiting for from the private sector. cheryl: okay. now, i know that one of the groups that you do watch, one of the groups that you're actually positive on, and there's not a lot, but it is healthcare, you do like healthcare. tell me kind of some of the names you appreciate right now in that space and also do you think that with the healthcare law, the exchange really beginning to kick in in the next 12 months that healthcare is going to continue that forward? >> we think healthcare will continue to being strong relative to the overall market. one area we like, you know, from a defensive standpoint is large cap pharma. you've seen this big race for record setting inflows into high yield bonds. we think one area that pays dividends that has been overlooked is large cap pharma. and we like names like joh

this find of oil in iraq, it was near the iranian border. just today on press tv, the iranian energy minister say this is share reserves. they want to move in. the context in iraq a kurdish conflict within are with the kurds have cut down their oil production from 100,000 barrels a day to 5,000 because they don't want baghdad to control it. so baghdad says, look, we found oil. we'll not be as dependent on the kurdish region. into this conflict america has been missing in action and iran is going to fill those voids if we stay asleep against political islam and its interests. melissa: steven, you make the great point this means that we should be more dependent on ourselves than ever before. we need the pipeline, but also pushes the focus to fracking and to shale. i worry especially with the president's speech yesterday and with the turnover that we're about to see at the department of energy that maybe we're going to see a crackdown on fracking and on shale here in the u.s. that really goes against our own self-interests. >> well, it really would. it really would be a shock, melissa i

that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of mai
as being the president who turned u.s. energy policy around, and started getting us transitioned from the old fossil fuel based economy from the last century to the near zero emission energy system of the 21st century, then he needs to deny the permit to this pipeline and send a signal that we cannot be expanding last century's fossil fuel infrastructure and expect to wind up with a 21st 21st century energy system. >> cenk: all right let's keep it real. if he does approve it, is he sending the opposite signal, that i just talked about climate change but in reality, i don't think it's that big a deal. >> so far it's hard to really identify anything concrete that president obama has done on the climate issue to really bring down emissions. if he approves key stone he can excel, that will be a concrete action to increase emissions and i think that president obama's legacy on the climate issue will be a shameful one. >> cenk: strong language. by the way, out of curiosity what do you think he's going to do? >> well, you know, i'm not one to predict the future. put it this way i've never be

of the denying quorum and in the case of speaking as long as you cou could, you had to spend time and energy, you had to organize and it was visible before this body. it was visible before the reporters gathered in the balcony. therefore, the american people, long before there was a television camera here, could see what you were doing and the public could provide feedback on that. but now we come to the modern era. from 1970 forward. in which it became popular to start using the objection as an instrument of party warfare, the objection to a final vote. you know, if we turn back before 1970, you had an overlap of the parties of perhaps 30 members. and so if one had used his objection, they'd have a good sense that you would be able to get cloture. furthermore, there was a social contract that you only interrupted the workings of this body on an issue of deep principle. you only blockaded the operations of the senate on an issue of profound concern to your state. not as a routine instrument of party politics. but that's changed over the last 45 years, since 1970 forward, the last 43 years, in whi
